We are proud to announce we are expanding into Shropshire. Pass the Keys, the UK’s leading short let management service, are now offering our services to property owners in Shropshire to help make managing their short-term lets efficient and hassle-free.

Since we were founded in 2015, short letting experts Pass the Keys have worked with hundreds of property owners across the UK, through sites such as Airbnb and Booking.com to host thousands of international and domestic guests. As the demand for short term lets is rising significantly in Shropshire, there is an increasing demand for professional support and services to help manage these properties. 

Pass the Keys is proud to introduce our latest franchise owner Vicky Brown; we caught up with her to find out why she’s so passionate about Shropshire and its growing short let industry!

VB: Hi. My name is Vicky and I am really excited to be launching a Pass the Keys franchise in Shropshire! I was born and raised here and have a great knowledge of what this beautiful county has to offer.

For the past twenty-two years, I have loved working in sales for Audi but have always had a passion for property, having renovated properties and worked as a landlord myself. I have had a long-term ambition to work in the property management industry and I felt the time was right for a change. The opportunity to launch a Pass the Keys franchise in Shropshire gives me the chance to diversify into property management and use my previous experiences. It was the perfect next step for me!

What drew you to partnering with Pass the Keys? 

VB: That’s easy, nobody was really offering what Pass the Keys do! I had thought of short-term letting my own properties on many occasions, however, I didn’t know where to start or have the time to manage them myself. 

When I came across Pass the Keys, it was exactly what I had been looking for, a fully managed end to end service and after a Zoom meeting, I quickly learnt that their company values mirrored my own. I wanted to provide those values and services to homeowners in Shropshire. 

I discovered that the technology used by Pass the Keys gives total transparency to the homeowner on a user-friendly app. So hosts can see the automated system in full flow, giving them confidence and allowing them to trust that their properties are being managed professionally and efficiently, with as high a yield as possible. 

Also to have the backup and expert knowledge of Pass the Keys gives me the confidence to do what I do best, provide excellent customer service to all my clients

Why does Shropshire need a short-let management company like Pass the Keys? 

VB: Managing a property on a short-term let is a deeply time-consuming, hands-on affair. It can take well over forty hours a month to manage a property well enough to attract regular guests and 5-star reviews… this is where we come in! Pass the Keys is the UK’s leading short-let property management company and offers a full end to end service. What’s more, Airbnb has recognised the service we offer and given their stamp of approval by awarding us with prestigious Airbnb Professional Co-Host status. 

With Pass The Keys, you have your own client portal, so you can see in real-time your upcoming bookings, what revenue your property is making you, and see photographs following its most recent clean. We are a new type of property management company, being locally run, with hassle-free management for homeowners. And I can’t wait to get started!
